Memories Timeline


  1. Our deepest sympathy to the Goulart Family! Many prayers going your way during this difficult time! May Carlos Rest In Peace! 🙏

  2. CandleOn behalf of the Reis family Frank, Marie and myself, we would like to express our sincerest sympathy to the Goulart family. Our prayers are with you all. May Carlos rest in peace. Sending much love to all.

  3. CandleCarlos, we will miss you tremendously. Your joy, wit, enthusiasm, and extreme talent has left an indelible mark on our lives and the world around you. You will never be forgotten. See you again, my friend.

  4. CandleMy wife Pam and I send our warmest and deepest condolences to the Goulart family and all of Carlos’ friends.

    We both met Carlos at Centerville Junior High. I remember playing soccer together and developing a friendship with him. Carlos was always a great guy to hang out with. It was so apparent that he had a special gift – his gift of drawing. I had never met anyone who could capture a moment with a pencil like Carlos. All through Washington High School, Carlos would doodle on my Pee Chee folders while we were in class together. I cherished his drawings and still retain those Pee Chees, and other drawings he created over those high school years. When I decided to start a company with several other of my technology peers back in 1999, I reached out to Carlos to craft our company logo and (of course) he nailed it! It rekindled our relationship which also led to several more creations. I hold them dear to my heart as they were created by this special guy that I was fortunate enough to call my friend.

    Along with his amazing drawings and artwork, I will remember Carlos as an incredibly upbeat guy with tons of passion and phenomenal humor! High energy to be around, we could spend hours reminiscing about friends, events and, especially cars. Many great memories!

    Thank you for being our friend, Carlos. You brought so much color into Pam and my life and truly appreciate it. You will be greatly missed…

  5. CandleI was so sorry to hear about Carlos’ passing. I met Carlos at Centerville Junior High. He was always so kind and extremely artistically talented.

    We stayed in contact through Facebook and again he was always such a sweet guy even online.

    Sending his family my deepest condolences. I am sure he is riding high in heaven.

  6. RIP to one of the truly good people on the planet, not to mention the most talented artist I’ve ever known – by far. He was one of my first friends when I moved to Fremont in 1977, thanks to being in same home room and art classes, where everyone gravitated toward the obviously way above our level artist that was Carlos. So sorry he left us so early. Wish I would have touched base again during my occasional visits to Fremont in the 1990s and 2000s. Carlos will forever hold a place in my heart for being such a good person and a friend to the “new kid in town” at Washington High. My sincerest condolences to his family and many friends. Peace…

  7. CandleCarlos was a very encouraging & inspiring friend to me when it came to the graphic arts. He saw that I had graphic artistic talent and wanted to spare me of going through what he went through to make it as a graphic artist. I remember Carlos telling me that I didn’t have to go through the gauntlet of being a starving graphic artist. So he started to mentor me and had me enroll in an upstart graphic design trade school in San Jose. That was a good experience for me being in that graphic design trade school because it laid a solid foundation for my creative & inspirational artistic juices that is still with me to this day ( as a free lance videographer & film editor.)

    It was funny at first when I met Carlos through his brother Tony. I was a young restless stud back then. ( The time was around 1990.) He picked up on the fact that I was a GQ fly guy and who liked the night club scene. So he told me that he would mentor me as great graphic artist and that I would mentor him as a great GQ fly guy. (lol) My, how times have changed. I will miss Carlos for sure.

  8. CandleI’m so moved to emotions, from joy to sadness. My long time friend, and fellow glen more wildcat, Carlos. Words will never satisfy the loss of a truly beautiful and gentle man. His artistic ability was evident at a very early age. Not ever knowing how he would and did impact people. God bless the Family. Gif bless us, for a great man has moved on. The gates swing wide for you Carlos.
